Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that.
Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the. cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Schreiner and Caneday have provided us what we have needed for a long, long time-a serious, exegetical wrestling . They engage the four major views on assurance and set forth a fifth. They exegete the full range of relevant biblical passages.
Schreiner and Caneday have provided us what we have needed for a long, long time-a serious, exegetical wrestling with the biblical understanding of the nature of saving faith and its implications for the people of God.

When we see what is at stake we tremble (and well we should), since many have gone before us who have been heedless of divine warnings. Yet we also may feel intimidated when we consider our own resources in finishing the race. We keenly realize that our strength is slight and our willpower inadequate. At this juncture in the race we take courage from the promises of God. He pledges that all those who are called and chosen will obtain the prize. He will provide the strength needed to finish the race. He will fortify our weakened knees and faltering resolve so that we do not apostatize.
The Christian life is like a racecourse, a marathon, set out before us. There is a reward in running well but particularly in finishing. Christians agree that this is a consistent pattern of New Testament teachingg. Do the warnings in Scripture tell us that it's up to us to succeed or fail in the race? If so, is there no assurance of our salvation? Or can we be assured that 'once saved, always saved,' and only a difference in rewards awaits us? Are there other ways of looking at these issues? These questions of perseverance in the Christian life and assurance of salvation have puzzled Christians for generations.
In the scriptures, the life of the Christian is compared to many things: boxing, wrestling, and war. One that resonates with many Christians is that of a race. On January 22, 2012, Greg King spoke to the Jamestown church of Christ about the race that we have set before us and what is required for us to endure.
